Here is what recent visitors Peter and Jackie from Ontario, Canada had to say about Casa Joya:
'Our very favorite place to stay, Casa Joya has so many wonderful attributes. Among them are its stunning views of the city and the surrounding Sierra, its perfect location so close to the center of San Miguel, and the marvel of the Casa itself, beautifully designed and the terrace is so beautifully lit at night it makes one wonder if its all real. It is so light and airy that the interior and courtyards seem to be one. We spent four weeks their in 2010 and we highly recommend it.'

Guestbook comments from the manager
(From Our Casa Joya Guestbook) Wow, what a trip! What a town! What an experience! We came to San Miguel to celebrate the marriage of 2 friends and this amazing house was only one of the many perks of this destination. This house being designed by the firm House + House is what caught my eye when looking for a place to stay. It was everything I expected and my group loved it just as much. Breakfast in the downstairs courtyard and cocktails on the roof - awesome. I would like to fold this house up, put it in my pocket, and take it home. :) And going to a Mexican Jewish wedding on a beautiful ranch that lasted 12 hours was an experience itself! This little town has been so welcoming and I hope to return many times!
My husband and I have traveled the globe for fun and work our entire 20+ years together. We have homes in San Francisco where we are originally from and now New York where we chose to move because business allowed. When we first saw San Miguel de Allende, it was introduced to us by the architects who remodeled our home in San Francisco in 1999. They own and build many homes in San Miguel and were raving about this absolutely magical 450-year old colonial town in Mexico. We fell under it's spell the first time we visited with our children, bought a piece of land in the historic center, and with these same architects built a dream vacation home for ourselves. We love all things cultural, hence our delight in living outside of NYC, and historical, but wanted a more relaxed environment to get away to. San Miguel fits all of these characteristics like a charm!
Centro Historic is the epicenter of San Miguel's vibrant life. This area is not only beautiful and historic, but where you will find most of the town's restaurants, cultural events (music, film and lectures), galleries, shopping and it's numerous and not to be missed regional and religious festivals. As San Miguel is truly a walking town, living in and around Centro Historico gives you easy access to all the best of what SMA has to offer and
Casa Joya is perfectly located to reach any the town's best attractions easily by foot.
We built Casa Joya to be a home away from home, making sure it was comfortable and functional as well as a delight to the eye.
